Also, unless you're cutting serious time off the Crescent, what do you really gain by shaving time?
It leaves Washington DC at a reasonable hour, and arrives at Atlanta at a decent hour.
Sure, saving a 1/2 hour or so might not hurt, but probably wouldn't help much either.

So, cutting stops is probably a net loss.

Yeah, the time keeping problems for 19/20 are south of Charlotte and won’t be helped by cutting a couple of middle of the night stops in NC.
